Jen Morris is a composer, performer, and visual artist. Her installations, sound performances, and artwork share the theme of alienation and dissonance. Her art encourages an intervention of chance, improvisation and free association of emotions. This motivates her to create art that is coherent in its imperfect ephemeral nature, but also unapologetically disquieting and awkward. She has performed and exhibited at Reina Sofia (ES), LUFF (CH), CTM Transmediale (DE), Send & Receive (CA), Netmage (IT), Venice Biennale (IT), LUFF does Tokyo (JP).
